This season was watchable, but it's starting to feel old since it lacks any new material. Frontier takes every concept from the previous three seasons and puts them into a blender. Want human-Digimon fusions a la Digimon Tamers? You got it. The traditional goggle-boy leader? Right here. The heroes beaten to a pulp until a deus ex machina plot device saves them? You bet. And I could just go on and on. It doesn't mean that I hate everything in this season per say. It's just nothing new is delivered to keep this Digimon anime adaptation fresh. And the plot to this series was light-hearted compared to Digimon: Digital Monsters and Tamers which was another turn-off for me. The character drama that intrigued me with those seasons was light for Frontier which hampered my enjoyment of this season.|
Overall, Digimon Frontier is bearable to watch. But having the same old concepts can be quite noticeable to those who have watched the first three seasons and could get rather dull if you can't put up with it.

Yep, I saw the series. Along with the other three Digimon out there. |
Now my rating isn't that flattering to the series, it's pretty well rounded, and everything is answered in the end. Basically the leader of the digi crew Takuya is the standard Digimon leader. Like Tai or Davis or even Takato. (But not so much so Takato since he was more laid back in the beginning of the series.)
Uh, that is neither here or there, point is he is a Goggle wearing hero of the series. I mean the others have there strong points like the wanna be hero J.P. Or the blonde and take charge female of the group Zoey. Or A.KA. the "Heart" of the team. Then there is Koji the skeptical calculating second in command if anything goes wrong. Koji is very cold at times, but of course, they all create a bond that make him look past the ice in his heart. Plus, a revelation later on in the series. And the "last" member of the crew Tommy. Who is a child and everyone looks after, until he becomes aware of his own strengths and becomes a powerful member.
Now of course there is digivolution but now it deals with the DigiDestine themselves. Since they do not have Digimon of there own, so to speak, but they themselves are the digimon. They transform by the power of the spirits they collect.
Then they find newer and better ways to Digivolve. And a final showdown which you think is final but isn't at the end. Yes, that's right, loops and twists to who you think is the real threat. I believe there were three of those.
Well, all in all, it was good time to spend before I went off to where ever I was going to my weekday mornings. The animation is sometimes okay and other times actually very fluid and exciting to watch. But it is a semi long series ranging to about 50 episodes. And everything is wrapped up into a bow at the end, but that'd be for you to decide if it's a nice red and pink frilly bow or a black and bland sharp bow that left you wanting a bigger climax. (I doubt it will be the second, but I felt like adding it since I am very insomniac tonight.)
Oh, and the music, there is none that you would find catchy or appealing. It's just there.
Uh, I would still recommend a watch, just to see the fourth and final Digimon series. Where Digimon has not gone before, and never will again to my dismay, cause I actually liked Digimon.
